LONDON: A day in the life #2

London Bridge. This has always been an interesting part of London. A mix of old and new. London’s oldest cathedral – Southwark cathedral (built 606 AD) is located here, as well as the famous Borough market filled with finest artisanal foods.

It is also close to London’s financial district, and you can always see suits riding bikes and stopping off for after work drinks.

A year on from the attacks here, we will always remember.

Do something everyday that scares you – #2

Perhaps not so much scary more adventurous and fun, I decided to go indoor skiing.

Doing something on your own that you have never done before can be quite fun, and is part of the spice of life 🙂

I walked in, gave my ticket, and was shown to the ski rental area where I got first my ski outfit, then my ski boots and skis.

What struck me first was how heavy the ski boots were. So difficult to walk in! Then attached to the skis themselves, wow!

Navigating in the fake snow was tough at first because you have to walk sideways to avoid slipping…but I got used to it.

Sliding down the slopes is a rush you can’t explain a feeling of freedom and serenity.

Though I fell down a couple of times, and feel sore all over today, I’m glad I tried it!

What about you? Have you tried skiing? What are your tips and favourite places to go?

And what have you done recently that scared you?

Merry Christmas

Merry Christmas! It snowed in my little village so I just thought I’d share the pictures with you!

Plus it feels weird not to post on Christmas Day, I do so every year!

I hope you’re having a great time with family and friends… enjoying the festivities and the warm and cozy spirit. If you’re alone, you’re not alone, sending you all the love ❤️.

Do something every day that scares you

Day 2- do something everyday that scares you.

I decided to go by the woods by my house and take a walk. I’ve been there with others but never by myself. It’s always been something I wanted to do… take a walk in the woods and be at one with nature 🙂

I went in, and look what I found:

frost!

Shocking but I’ve never seen it before. I’m a city girl all through.

Beautiful nature.

I found a tree, sat down and breathed in the beautiful air for about 20 minutes.

What have you done recently that scares you? Comment below 🙂

Hello UK, Goodbye Italia!

Hello Everyone!

The time came a few months back for me to say goodbye to Italia and return to the UK. It was a difficult, teary goodbye because its hard to say goodbye to something you have wanted for so long.

I took some time to adjust to UK life, and get back into a different culture and a different way of things.  Photos from the UK will now follow, I hope you enjoy!IMG_3460

Italy was such an amazing experience. Something one does for ones soul, you know? Never had I been so pushed, so challenged, so out of my depth and yet… so in awe. I met amazing people, and saw so many amazing things.

Its one of those experiences that stay with you forever, and wonder if it was really you 😀

 

Onward!
